    Forms Comparison

    LuKKa
      Hi All
      Do we have any functionality to compare to FMBs ?
      Let say i have 2 forms , one is old and one is latest . How can I compare both the forms so that I can know what is the difference between thiese two forms .

            Hi
            I want to compare both the forms , the older version and the new version .
            I want to check what is the difference triggers are there and what the difference coding is there in a trigger .
            I want to check all the diff between 2 forms .

              There are commercial tools to do so, one i know of is FormsApiMaster.

                You could also convert your forms to XML format using and compare them. However this wouldn't work for 6i and older versions. The FormsAPIMaster like Andreas suggested has a little brother named FormsTool which has the same compare functionality as FormsAPIMaster but lacks the scripting API (which you wouldn't need for plain compare). We are using it as diff/merge tool in conjunction with subversion for some years now and are quite pleased with it ;).
